Often we find ourselves in a situation in which we just do not know what to do. For example, one time on my first day working in a cafe, the person who was in charge of training me told me to “go downstairs and get a round.” I didn’t know what that meant at all and instead of asking “what does that mean?” I just went downstairs and hoped that, on the way down, I would figure out what it meant to “get a round.” Not surprisingly, once I got to the first floor I was still unsure. So I went to the cashiers (it was the cafe of a popular chain of bookstores) and said, “Uhh…[so and so] told me to get a round?” And they said, “We don’t know what that means,” and told me to maybe go ask the manager? So I went to the manager’s office and said, “Uhh…[so and so] told me to get a round?” And he said, “Well, I don’t really know what that means, but she probably wants some money in each denomination for the cash register.” Or whatever. He said something like that, and as it turned out, that WAS what she meant! And if I hadn’t been for that manager, I would have had to come back, like, 25 minutes later empty-handed being like, “Ok, sooo, I didn’t know what you meant?” The End. That story is just like this video, except instead of me it is this guy, and instead of “a round” it is “knowing what a snowblower does and how to use it” and instead of the manager it is two dudes filming him from their window and laughing.
Awww, you poor thing. You should’ve asked someone what the purpose of using that snowblower was before you tried to use it! There’s no shame in asking! There is a little shame in this, though! I’m sorry!!! (Via Abroath.)
